Lee Tae-hwan from 'Thirty-Nine' to join military next Monday
Actor Lee Tae-hwan, who only recently came into the spotlight after starring in “Thirty-Nine” (2022) on JTBC, will start his military service on June 27.
His agency Man of Creation said on Tuesday that he will be entering a training camp next Monday and said it will not “reveal the exact location and time.”
“Please understand our decision to not reveal the exact time and location as many other men will be entering the training camp at the same time,” the agency said in a statement. “He will serve the country well and come back in good condition after he’s completed his service. Please support him in the meantime.”
Lee, 27, debuted in 2013. He’s been taking small roles in short television series until he became known for his role in SBS’s drama series “Please Come Back, Mister” in 2016. His popularity rose after taking a lead role in “Thirty-Nine,” which came to an end in March. Actors Son Ye-jin, Jeon Mi-do and Kim Ji-hyun played his character's best friends, who are all 39 years old in the series.
